ultimaker original doesnt took out the right ammount of finlament

Posted · ultimaker original doesnt took out the right ammount of finlament

I have this printer for three years and Im not using it for this unsolved problem I even bought a new nozzle but still nothing.

the printer is accepting my models but when it comes to the process the nozzle doesnt take out enought finlament to actually make it...only the moves on the axes

Every video I checked I worked with it but still nothing ..it feels like the motor its not strong enough to move the finlament even tho its making the right noise it doesnt pull in

the finlament in the right way...

 no one in my town know about this stuff and its such a pity i made it to put together all these screws but not to actually working at the end.

thank you in advance  for your time

waiting for any possible scenarios of solutions

    Some picture would help a lot to understand your problem and give you precise advice on what you could try to fix your problem.


    However it is known that the UMO extruder can have some problems... What filament are you trying to print? Is your bowden tube old? Same for the filament. Old filament get less flexible and this causes high friction in the bowden, resulting in extrusion defaults.


     As first advice:


    - Check the feeder gears, clean them and try tu adjust the tension, if itz is to low it will slip and grind the filament, if it is to high the marks it makes on the filament can cause friction.



    - Clean out your bowden with compressed air or a little piece of cloth that you push trough it.



    - Chech if the nozzle is clear, try some hot and cold pull to clean it
